The artisan

Sandro Serra in his laboratory Casa del Mar Ceramiche in Tempio Pausania, at the heart of Gallura, crafts artistic clay with passion and inspiration, obtaining a limited selection of objets d'art characterized by vibrant and glassy blue colors, and the careful and sophisticated rendering of material surfaces. With sensitivity and competence, they are textured, etched, engraved and glazed. The refined plasticity of his decoration, together with obvious technical experiments, is the result of a continuous and constant aesthetic research, which results in singular unpredictable decorative projects, characterised by a recognizable concept of harmony and beauty: the lighting and decorative elements and furnishing enshrine and pass on the pieces the suggestion of an exclusive creative and craft process which are peculiar of this ceramist's style.

The collection

The production, clearly oriented to the object's customization according to the needs of the customer, is a characteristic feature of the lighting elements. Made in an interesting variety of shapes and embellished by sophisticated decorations, table and wall lamps become unique pieces which can characterize several different contexts. The home accessories such as vases, containers, bowls and decorative plates, are the result of separate creative projects, molded and decorated by hand, combining the artistic inspiration to skilful craftsmanship.

The technique

In the laboratory he uses normal clay pastes and local clays, the composition of which provides the product with different shades of color and greater porosity. The stylistic research evolves with technical research, obtained by testing and experimenting with mixtures of glazes, oxides, dyes, pigments, engobes, with materials capable of restoring materiality as ash, salt, rock dust. The processing of sheets also allows to experience surface effects realized with impression techniques. The baking protocols are mixed in an experimental research approach.
